The roster of the Turkish women’s volleyball side Eczacıbaşı VitrA will undergo significant changes, rumors say.


According to Gian Luca Pasini, Eczacıbaşı will hire an American duo of players. Chiaka Ogbogu has been chosen for the role of middle blocker. This season, she wore the jersey of Italy’s Imoco Volley Conegliano. Together with her, the “Tigers” are ready to hire youngster Jordan Thompson, who has just completed her premiere professional season, playing for Eczacıbaşı’s home title rivals Fenerbahçe Opet.

Volley News added that these two will replace an existing American duo: the setter Carli Lloyd and the middle blocker Lauren Gibbemeyer.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
